The heatwave that brought record-breaking temperatures to Suffolk and Essex is being replaced by “fresher” conditions today - though inland areas could still see highs of 21C.

The Met Office’s forecast for today is for temperatures to be cooler for all parts of the UK - though East Anglia is expected to escape the rain that is likely to affect western areas.

Met forecaster Alex Deakin said: “A cooler, fresher feel outside on Wednesday morning compared to recent mornings.

“Still sunny in many places but it’s clouding over in the west.”

While some parts of the UK could struggle to see temperatures above 10C, Mr Deakin said central and eastern areas were “hanging on to the sunny spells.”

“Temperatures are noticeably down on what they have been of late, but it’s just been so very warm recently that these values are still well above average,” he added.

Weatherquest forecasts dry and warm weather “with long spells of sunshine at first, but increasing cloud from the west in the afternoon”.
